Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Heads up to anybody who gets a copy of the new 6" Bespin Luke Skywalker from The Black Series: Jedi Temple Archives just reported that at least one copy of the Luke has arrived with the one of the hands cracked near or along the wrist joint. It may be confined to just one or a few copies of the new figure, but you might want to check yours if you already have one.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I just had one of those scores that only happens once in a blue moon!



This is a DC Direct Salaak. One of my favorite Green Lanterns, I've seen this figure going upwards of $80-$100 loose! I found this one at my LCS in their loose figure case for $7.99! I am just thrilled. I've been lamenting his absence from my display for the longest time.

Yeah if Marvel Legends does do an Infinite Series line for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" I suspect they'll time it for release with the DVD/Blu-Ray later in the fall, that means we could get teases at SDCC. That is if they do something.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I'm not terribly familiar with the Green Lantern universe of characters, but that figure looks absolutely stunning. Any action figure that immediately draws your eye and holds it with such exotic colors and designs has already won....that's a pretty cool figure and congrats on scoring him!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Well the near three year wait is almost over. I finally ordered the Diamond Select Enterprise-E...but the First Contact edition! It will be here in a couple of weeks along with the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Marvel Infinite Legends figures.


Long time thread readers will know my patience regarding the E-E. I originally wanted the "Nemesis" version, but once I saw the First Contact release, I knew I had to get it. I've read and seen so many great things about both ships, I can't wait to finally get it in my hands!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I wish my picture wasn't so crappy. My camera is a simple Kodak point and shoot, and has a tendency to wash out pictures, as I'm sure you've noticed. A lot of the pictures for the action figure comic have needed darkened in Gimp before they could be used.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Wave Three of 6” Black Series just hit retail down in New Zealand according to some of the collecting sites. If you haven't already ordered online then you might want to start keeping an eye out at your local stores. American store reports don't lag that far behind East Asia and the Pacific.

New Avengers adventure! They discover the TARDIS.



Clint and Tasha brought the little ones with them.



Bigger on the inside!



Plenty of nooks for naps!



Iron Man wanted a nap, too. I don't think Cap or Fury will let him.



"AND STAY OUT!!!" Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper stand guard until The Doctor returns.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Nice. Although I don't think Iron Man was really napping per se. More along the lines of Tony sleeping one off.

The first picture would make for a pretty good Facebook cover photo.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I might do that. It's probably not wide enough, though.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I think I'm about to get my hands on a Darth Plagueis. He'll cost a few bucks more than retail, but a carded copy just became available and given that I don't have access to a Disney Store this might be my best shot. We'll see. He's the only 3.75" Black Series figure I need so it'd be pretty sweet to cross him off the list.

eBay scalpers suck.
